This was as far as I got as well. They say there are combos for 4, but think they're may not be any for 3.

You're probably already familiar with Wordle's words if English is your first language.

Reading through the Absurdle tutorial, Iím not so sure. How often do I use terns?

Is it a genetic skill, or she learned from her abba?

abbot (n.)
Old English abbod "abbot," from Latin abbatem (nominative abbas), from Greek abbas, from Aramaic (Semitic) abba, title of honor, literally "the father, my father,"
https://www.etymonline.com/word/abbey

The more you know! She had no idea she was making a pun, though she was extremely chuffed when I told her. In general, she HATES my puns and loves making her own. I can't say I've never avoided making the pun myself and then aided and abetted her in making it, abi she's having fun. I would hate to stress her out to the point she starts writing Dear Abbey letters.

Is terns usable as a final answer in Wordle (2.5K options) or only as a guess (10K+ options)?

Should be pretty often, if you do the NYT Mini enough times.  Or walk along NYC coastlines.

I would guess as a final answer because it seems like a common word to me.  But now I'm trying to think whether I've ever seen it used outside of a crossword puzzle.  :-\

In at least one DDF TR:

I thought it was used in the Antarctica TR, but a quick glance didn't turn it up.
